University of Louisville football coach Charlie Strong has interviewed for the head coaching vacancy at Texas.

The Austin American-Statesmen confirms that Longhorns athletic director Steve Patterson interviewed Strong at an undisclosed location Tuesday. Strong has been rumored as a possible coaching candidate at Texas after the school announced Mack Brown would not return next season as head coach following 16 years in Austin.

Officials at the University of Louisville, however, say they never granted Texas permission to speak to Strong about their opening.

A Texas spokesman says their athletic director won’t release any names related to their search until a decision is made.
